Yasemin O.'s (Yasemondoll) Beauty Product Reviews
This is an amazingly feminine fragrance; one that makes you feel as if you're wafting through a cloud of flowers. Despite being flower-based it's not artificial smelling, it's incredibly classy and I always end up picking this one when I'm headed for a job interview. The staying power is alright, I sometimes wish it lasted a little longer.
A matter of chemistry!
I love this perfume, absolutely love it. It's very easy to overdo it with this one, so I normally go out to my balcony and spray the air a couple times and walk underneath it- the scent will last until you wash your clothes! (No joke). I find it best suited to colder days.
One point is that I don't think you should buy it without testing it. It smells so differently on everyone that you can be disgusted by the smell on person A while falling in love with it on person B.
This is a great treatment. I'm in love with the smell, the texture and the fact that I bought this batch five years ago and haven't come close to finishing it yet! It's not something I use regularly because it does take time and effort to wash it out but it's worth it. For fine-haired gals like me, maybe applying it to the scalp isn't such a good idea, because you can end up with limp hair until your next shampoo- damaged ends thrive on this, though!
Solid, could have a better selection of colors...
This is a good, simple concealer. Not too thin/thick, the consistency is great and it's creamy so you don't get tell-tale signs of usage. However I think that the color options aren't good enough for people with my skin tone. I had the same problem with MAC foundations.
It was an okay mascara to use.... Didn't make much of the 'impact' it claims to make on my lashes. It is a good, glossy black though- maybe better for everyday wear, or for people with thicker lashes.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid in a great formula!
I've been using it for about a year now, not daily but at times when I'm not undergoing some vicious acne treatment with BP or retinols. BTW, the retinols and BP have never worked half as good as this stuff has. It's worth a try if you have problematic skin. Whenever I give up the chemicals and come back to this i wonder why i ever deserted it in the first place :)
Amazing- when I can be bothered to put in the effort...
The color, the texture, the light-reflecting properties are just wonderful! However, you need to have an excellent base with this one, you can't just slather it on (or maybe my skin is this way). So moisturize well, wait about half an hour, put on primer and gently smooth this stuff on and it looks and feels great. Lasts a good 8 hours on primed skin.
Color match disaster for me...
MAC foundations do not mix well with my face. I'm always the palest color option (most brands do not carry foundations light enough for my skin) and I chose this one, which seemed to match my face perfectly when it was sitting in the bottle. On my face, however, it looked splotchy and oxidized soon after. A great alternative to this is actually L'Oreal's True Match in C1.
